Product Description


I heartily recommended the book to all lovers of literature, particularly over a pint of Badger's Ale... I was captivated by the effluence of imagination, which reminded me somewhat of Dickensian sandwich imagery in its use of semi-colons --Ambrose Bloater Reviews... Zonk Chronicle, January 2001

Product Description

Words can be butchered, bowlderised, plagiarised, popularised, pulped, abbreviated, adulterated and bifurcated. Chas Saunders should know as he did it all to produce Chronic, an outrageously funny novel in the tradition of Spike Milligan's Puckoon.

Somewhere in Great Britain is a town called Zonk, a cultural wasteland populated by yobs, snobs and idiots. But behind the scenes, Zonk is a hotbed of mysterious goings-on. What is the sinister secret of Doc the tattoo artist? Who dared to challenge Arnold Plucknett's impregnable security system and scratch a rude message on his car? What is the connection between a flurry of UFO sightings and the local charity shop? What is the uneasy alliance between handsomely hypnotic Mervyn Mandrake and Reg Pratt the ex-traffic warden?

Ace reporter Lindy Linthwaite is on the case, aided by her well-meaning but utterly maladjusted team of Godfrey the snapper and Andrew the scribbler. In search of the hottest scoop, they'll discover a tangled web of intrigue and idiocy. Zonk will never be the same again. Read all about it in the Zonk Chronicle, fondly known as the Chronic...

Chronic is a hilarious work of friction from the highly original mind of legendary writer and cartoonist Chas Saunders. This new revised digital edition is FULLY ILLUSTRATED and contains exclusive extra material, including an introduction by Peter J Allen and four brand new spelling mistakes.

To avoid disappointment, read CHRONIC, not the blurb.

From the Publisher

Chronic not only contains words and punctuation. It's FULLY ILLUSTRATED with funky graphics and quirky cartoons. 174 pages of pure undiluted entertainment! Better value than a frozen hippo on a stick! (How long can we keep this up?) To avoid disappointment, read CHRONIC, not the blurb. That's the only way you can find out for yourself...

From the Author

This book was written entirely on location.

From the Back Cover

A remarkable work... Contains the biggest thrill for literature lovers with its distinctive use of old tyres in the third chapter, evoking the sensual feel of the ancient Octopus Legend... And for those who can't read, the author has supplied a wealth of helpful diagrams.
